Dr. Edward J. Penwrit
Unkempt by the standards of the institute he represents, but positively a ruffian on appearance to his Lordship - however, the good doctor's meek demeanor, civil tongue and slightly oafish actions offset against a list of credentials longer than his arm.
No doubt all well earned as an educator - having had a period between 1939 and 1945 to focus so diligently on his work...
Cambridge educated, Dr. Penwrit has been hired as validator and auctioneer for the Lord's private party. His knowledge of antique armories are certain to be of relevance this night.
A man with a clean record!
Not even a whisper of gossip in the dingiest bar around the name Dr. Edward J. Penwrit.
